A New Twist For A Tropical Strawberry Smoothie!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

Today's post is happily sponsored by Vitamix!

Strawberries are back in season and including them to a smoothie is a must for warmer weather happiness.  We took a classic strawberry ice cream shake and mixed it up a little and we have a new classic Strawberry Smoothie! - no ice cream, just grass fed yogurt, fruit and a bit of coconut milk (or your choice in milks)!  Make this re-imagined classic with your kids and celebrate summer fun! 

Ingredients - 

1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
1/2 cup of fresh strawberries
1/2 of Grassfed Plain Yogurt - we love Stonyfield!
1/2 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
squeeze of fresh lime
1/2 of lemon (we are big fans of lemon, use a whole if you like!)
3/4 frozen pineapple or mango
Ceylon Cinnamon - to taste

1/2 cup - Choose grass fed whole milk, coconut milk, water or soy milk 
(organic and with no additives)

Taste and tweak, if necessary.

Add your ingredients and press the smoothie option!

We choose organic, fresh and frozen ingredients!  Now that Driscoll's is working with Fair Trade Federation, we look for and buy Driscoll's organic & fair trade strawberries!

Food and Farmers Matter!


We simply love the Vitamix S55 Personal Blender for smaller sized batches.  When it's just me and the kids home, it's absolutely perfect!  And it has become my travel must-have accessory.  Easy to bring with me on road trips and the kids and I can eat and drink healthy!
